Connecting: BigCommerce + Acumatica
While !nk was running its customers’ stores on various platforms, the need for a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system arose and the company selected Acumatica, an open-architecture solution that enables merchants to manage their products, orders, customers, inventory, accounting and more from a single cloud-based system.
“In addition to Acumatica we learned that one of its valued resellers had created a plugin for screenprinting. We were ecstatic. It was the first domino to fall where I was like, ‘Wow! We actually found a solution that can get relevant with our stack,’" Harris exclaimed.
The second domino that needed to fall was selecting a single ecommerce solution that !nk would use to build its customers’ merchandise-driven websites. But, the question was, which one? Of the multiple platforms !nk was using at the time, only BigCommerce, Shopify and Magento connected to Acumatica.
Magento was highly customisable. Shopify had the front-end user interface. Yet, neither seemed to thrive at both. But, BigCommerce did. “Look, we’re not trying to overstretch this side of our business, but you better believe we would be sunk if we did not have BigCommerce. The BigCommerce platform was exactly what we needed,” Harris said.
The two-way integration between BigCommerce and Acumatica allows !nk to simplify and streamline business operations and functionality on its customers’ websites. Zonos is an international checkout app !nk uses to help its merchants sell globally. “We fulfill so many orders internationally with Zonos,” Harris said.
Avalara, a sales tax automation tool and ShipStation, an import, ship and tracking app, are two additional go-to apps !nk integrates into its customers’ online stores.
